Police Chief Says ISIS Islamist Shot Cop; Mayor Contradicts Him
Question: Who's Lying? The Cop or the Politician?
January 11, 2016
You'll be amazed when you watch the video below from the Philadelphia press conference on last night's shooting of a police officer. The first speaker is the Philadelphia Police Commissioner, Richard Ross, Jr. The man scowling at him over his left shoulder in the video is the Mayor, Jim Kenney. Ross relates that the man in Muslim dress who ambushed the officer and fired 13 shots at him said he did it in the name of Islam. He stated that the police enforce laws that contradict Islamic Sharia law, and therefore need to die.
Then the Mayor steps to the podium and says, "In no way, shape or form does anyone in this room believe that Islam or the teachings of Islam to do with this...That is abhorrent. It’s terrible and it does not represent the religion in any way, shape or form or any of its teachings. And this is a criminal with a stolen gun who tried to kill one of our officers. It has nothing to do with being a Muslim or following the Islamic faith in any way, shape or form."
I wish I had been a reporter at the press conference and had been able to ask the Mayor these questions:
1) If no one in the room believes the shooting has anything to do with Islam, why did your top cop just state categorically that it was motivated by Islam?
